a mind for design, a passion for innovation

Good design goes beyond the surface. When design really works, it satisfies a need, simplifies your life and makes you feel great. Whether it’s helping designer Jason Wu translate his latest runway looks to real life or creating a smarter prescription bottle to help your medicine go down, we’re dedicated to making good design accessible and affordable to all.

at the heart of our culture

Target team members

We set high standards for your Target experience—where you shop with us and in our company halls. We aim to be a place where guests and team members will always find more than they expect. Our mission and values set the stage, and day-to-day innovation, teamwork and community partnerships reflect who we are.
